LOS ANGELES – Gay icons Cher and Kathy Griffin have a special message for America about presidential nominee Mitt Romney and other Republicans.
The video is part of the “Actually…” series that have featured Rosie Perez, Sarah Silverman and Kamau Bell as they tackled the many lies of the Romney/Ryan campaign.
Cher and Griffin call out Romney, Paul Ryan and their Republican allies for their hateful attacks on women and the frightening attempts to redefine women’s rights. They also issue a special appeal to their legions of LGBT fans.
The video series is sponsored by the Jewish Council for Education and Research (JCER), in partnership with American Bridge 21st Century.
